Free Fishing Clinics at State Parks, 1

Passport to Texas from Texas parks and Wildlife and the Sport Fish Restoration Program

During spring break you got a taste of what it’s going to be like when the kids are out of school this summer. How will you and the kiddos fill the days on end of “free time” to come?

We at Texas Parks and Wildlife suggest a relaxing, entertaining, and low cost activity you and your family can take to the bank. It’s a little something we like to call fishing.

And all month long you’ll find free fishing clinics at state parks where you can hone your skills.

Even though we gear these clinics primarily for children…we’re, of course, encouraging parents to be there with their children. And what I think is really fun is to watch the parents become just as engaged at these clinics as the children are.

Ann Miller oversees angler education.

Once of the activities people will be able to participate in is learning about fishing regulations. A lot of people, we realize, don’t know when it is that you need to have a fishing license. So, they’ll be able to find that out. They’ll be able to find out about size and bag limits for different species of fish in the state, and at different locations. So, we’ll also be teaching about fishing safety. We want everyone to get out there and enjoy our resources… fish… have fun…and be safe on the water.

Visit passporttotexas.org for a list of fishing clinics taking place statewide.

That’s our show…sponsored by the Sport Fish Restoration Program… funded by your purchase of fishing equipment and motor boat fuels.
